I wrote about Ganbare, Nippon!! in my last post. It was a charity event with the purpose to help Japanese earthquake and tsunami victims. There were workshops (language introduction, origami, sweet deco, etc.), martial arts demonstrations, some free, some not but always affordable and for a good cause.
Here the ladies who were teaching Japanese calligraphy (for free!) were on a break. We had our chance at Japanese calligraphy later on.
